Katy is unique in that she is excellent on her feet and exceedingly thoughtful, purposeful, and strategic. Her oral argument skills are, in my opinion, unmatched, and she's only just getting started. Working with Katy is a true pleasure. She is an excellent listener and someone who sees all sides of a problem. At the same time, Katy is a confident leader--someone who can get the job done well and on time. Most opposing counsel will find that it is hard to keep up with Katy! Her work product is top quality, and her dedication to her cases is noteworthy. One would be hard pressed to find an attorney with Katy's work ethic and natural ability when it comes to crafting and delivering oral and written arguments of such high quality.
